  • Fantastic place for hiking or to appreciate nature. Go for Pantai Keracut trail (2 hours trail) and you are going to love the cleaner version of Penang beaches. Don't forget to drop by at the turtle conservation center too.
  • The place is still great if you are heading towards Pantai Kerachut, might get a chance to see turtle hatch. I do not recommend you to go to Monkey beach, poorly maintain and boat ride should be around RM 40 per boat as of Feb 2017.
  • Beautiful place for trekking... Full slope climbing.. There are steps as well as trek, to climb the peak point..
  • Best place to escape! Out of people out of noise. Jungle track to kerachut beach for 2920m and 1 hour with normal speed
  • had a lovely time walking to to keratchut beach, same distance to monkey beach (2990m) and walking is fun and safe enough
